Lassen Volcanic NP

Clark and I kicked off our three season adventures in early April with a visit to Lassen VNP. We traveled shorter distances than expected, experience more cold than desired, and came home early when we realized we didn't have enough fuel to melt snow for water. Here are some pictures.
